Kathryn Keller

Kathryn Keller is a painter based in New Orleans and Alexandria, Louisiana. She received a BA in Fine Art and English from the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee. She has had subsequent studies at The Arkansas Arts Center in Little Rock, Arkansas, The Arts Student League of New York in New York, NY, and The New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts in New Orleans, Louisiana. Her early work can be classified as narrative in nature, focusing on myth, family life, birth, and death. In her late forties, she began working exclusively from life, continuing to draw inspiration from her surroundings, family, and location. Over the past twenty years, she has focused on landscapes, cityscapes, interiors, and portraits, continuing to develop her narrative, figurative, and landscape work. She has said of her practice, “When I first painted a pine tree, I first loved a pine tree. Before I painted the tree, I thought ‘how Inferior to other trees they are!’ But in the painting of the pine tree, I learned how it was made. I marveled in the architecture of it.” She has shown her work throughout the south in galleries and museums and has work in public and private collections.
